Sidney E. DickinsonU.S. 1890-1980
Sidney Dickinson firmly believed that all portraiture should be accomplished in front of the model. He usually finished the head of the portrait in one sitting and took pride in the fact that he came to the portrait without a pre-conceived notion of the sitter. The sitter, in this case, was his wife Mary. A well-known portraitist and instructor for many years at the Art Students League in New York, Dickinson was a former student of William Merritt Chase at the same school.
